A Scoping Review of Decolonization in Indigenous-Focused Health Education and Behavior Research
This journal article summarizes a scoping review of decolonization of the Indigenous-focused health behavior and education literature. Selected articles were assessed for the definition of decolonization (if provided), descriptions of decolonial processes used (if stated), and the application of the decolonial processes (e.g., for research, intervention, or critique, etc.) in order to determine if norms for conceptualizing the definitions and processes of decolonization exist. Recommended actions for challenging colonizing structures and engaging with community partners to advance the visions of social justice and health equity are also provided.
